New Details for Octagon Global and LOST Panel at Comic Con

Hey Losties,
So as you know we are gathering a good team of Losties and friends to make the trip to San Diego Comic Con. We will be live blogging from SDCC and the LOST Panel that will be held on Saturday (currently scheduled for 12 noon PST). It seems like tickets for Saturday when the LOST panel is scheduled are sold out, but if you have a ticket and want to join us, please email me at:

As most of you know ABC is planning on having a booth with a new company called Octagon Global Recruiting (OGR) that is a division of the Dharma Initiative. All that has been officially confirmed is that OGR is set up to recruit us the fans as members of the DI.

ABC has been hush hush about more details or plans, but thanks to a new source we seemed to have received some interesting details of what is planned.

Now, this is the first time we have some potential "spoilers" about Comic Con, so if you do NOT want to know or be spoiled, then STOP reading now. Additionally the information seems quite legit and we trust the source, but have no confirmation from ABC yet.

Plus, there is NO word on if anything from OGR or SDCC will ever make the show and the current rumors are that this will lead to a new LOST ARG leading into Season 5. So for many this is most likely not spoilery, but we want to be safe and warn you all.

Please do NOT email us asking who the source, is because we have promised to keep them anonymous, but if you want to know the information then click the following button to see more details.

This is just a SUMMARY of the information we received and yes we know some of it is stuff we knew already.

1) At the OGR recruitment booth there will be actors who will playing members of OGR recruiters.

2) They are there to promote and make us sign up to an "online recruiting game". The recruiters will stand next to computer terminals that are connected to the fake site, in order to help users create profiles and to guide them through a fake questionnaire.

3) A second group of individuals (3-4 actors) that are NOT the recruiters will also be at SDCC. No confirmation if they will be on the floor or at the booth yet, but most likely just the LOST Panel.

4) OGR will also be a part of the LOST Panel. There will be 4 members of OGR.5) As of today, no cast members confirmed to appear and the only word so far is that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will of course be there.

6) At the panel, the OGR recruiters will make a LIVE "performance" to recruit new members of Dharma.

7) The second group of individuals will make an appearance at some point during the performance to "throw a wrench" into the OGR's plans.

So to me it looks like another Rachel Blake type of incident is planned...?? Is this all the beginning of a new LOST Experience/Find815 game or perhaps even more than that....!?

This is what we have so far and hopefully we will get some more information soon. So keep checking back for more information and as soon as we have it, we will let you all know.NOTE: You can click on the
OGR button in this post or on the top right of this site to see all the posts about the OGR and find some more details.

Thanks for stopping by and namaste.
